Hello. I am married to a muslim man and we have two kids we are raising togehter. We just recently found out that his parents and his family have deceptively trying to have me convert to Islam which I found very snake like. I started looking into Islam and I just find many things confusing, or atleast to me hypocritical. I don't have any issues with the idea that there is one god, that prophet mohammad wrote the Quran etc. What I don't get is how other than those sentiments all Muslims seem to have there own ideas of what they should and should not regardless of what the Quran says, so how can they be Muslims. And also there are definitely things stated in Islam that can not make sense in todays day and age. My last issue and this is the biggest one, whenever I question Islam I get attacked, point blank period. I ask a question, I get a response and then if I give a follow up question the person can't answer I get told either the person doesn't really know the answer or that I am out of line for asking. Why? For a religion that states its so perfect that everything is laid out for you, how can so few muslims no anything about there religion except for what they've been told by there parents. I'll wait until this post gets approved before I start asking any of my questions. It will be a shame if even here on an "islam" forum that someoen who asks questions gets shut down just because the question is threatening a muslims beliefs.
First of all Prophet Muhammad (SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) did not write the Holy Qur'an. It was revealed to him by the angel Jibril (Alayhi Salaam) and the words contained therein are directly from God (in Arabic Allah).
Muslims are terrified of giving any answers in case that what they say is wrong and not in line with the Holy Qur'an and the Hadiths. You will always be asked to seek help from an Imam or research scholarly articles.
Anyway fire away yor questions and there are so many knowledgeable people here who will help you Insha'Allah.
By the way, a woman from the People of the Book (Jew or Christian) is allowed to marry a Muslim man, this is allowed in Islam.
